It’s the way Americans nominate their candidates for president that inspires Canadian cheekiness. Heck, if Canada had a population of 300 million people, we would certainly find a better cadre of leadership aspirants. Trump pounded and belittled 16 other contenders to win the Republican nomination four years ago. The smart folks said he couldn’t win the presidency, but they didn’t factor in the Democrats nominating the one candidate Trump could beat — Hillary Clinton. Four years later, the Democrats seem determined to reelect Trump. Their long, confusing path to the nomination convention puts proof to the Will Rogers observation that he wasn’t a member of any organized political party — he was a Democrat.
